Fibonacci have announced the release of The Ambassador, ‘A beautiful archtop in it’s simplest, most understated form. No bling, no fancy inlay on the fingerboard, no quirky headstock. Just a very simple design aesthetically, with the main focus being on its performance’ state Fibonacci.
As standard, the Ambassador is formed from a parallel braced, hand carved AAA spruce top, and hand carved AAA flame maple back and sides. It is fitted with a maple neck, dove-tail joined at the 14thfret, 14” radius ebony fingerboard, with 20 Jescar EVO gold frets. Peripherals are hand profiled ebony finger-rest, tailpiece, and floating bridge with bone saddle.
The Ambassador can be finished in nitrocellulose lacquer or custom finished by acoustic builder, James Millman using his secret Devon, guitar oil mix. Either way, the result is perfection, retaining the natural aesthetics and the responsive acoustics of the guitar.
The Ambassador comes fitted as standard with a floating Kent Armstrong humbucker. But it can be fitted with a floating Dickinson or KRIVO humbucker or a set-in an OX4 handwound humbucker, with a hand profiled ebony pickup ring. But, as I am sure you can appreciate, everyone has their own taste when it comes to pickups.
